Photo Recap: Steve Wynn and The Miracle 3 at Littlefield (May 19, 2012)

Having crosses a river or two, Steve Wynn and The Miracle 3 set up shop in Brooklyn last night.  The band played at Littlefield, a club in a mostly industrial section of Gowanus right near that neighborhood’s border with Park Slope.  Dressy Bessy, a Colorado-based garage/punk band played a bracing opening set.

Steve and company took the stage a bit after 11pm and played a varied 12 song set which held a few surprises.  The arrangement of Merrittville played last night was one that hasn’t been played since the late 80s; you can hear it on the Dream Syndicate’s Live at Raji’s record.

When Steve and The Miracle 3 had finished Amphetamine, they left the stage and the house music came on.  But the band returned, the house music turned off and everyone came to the front of the stage for a version of 500 Girl Mornings played without the house sound system.

There are a lot of good things to say about Littlefield: the sound is excellent, the stage is big and it’s a comfortable place to watch a show. But the stage lighting is inconsistent: bright in the middle and dark away from the middle.  So taking pictures without a flash as I do is sometimes frustrating there.   But I still managed to get a few shots from the show.  They are below and are followed by last night’s set list.
